we use the following configuration on a csm to monitor a server farm and I'm wondering how exactly the probe timers work.
nat client natpool1
real name serv1
real name serv2
probe probe1 script
So in my eyes the probes are sent every 5 seconds. When a probe isn't answered within one second it's marked as failed. If two probes are failed (retries 2) the real server is marked as down.
Is this correct?
In a network trace I see a different behaviour: Probes are sent every 5 seconds. If a real server goes out-of-service I see a probe which is not answered and the next probe is sent after 10 seconds (I expected 5 seconds). 5 seconds later the real server is marked down in the switch log.
It would be fine if anybody could help me.
